    Aerobask doing Falcon 8X

    https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/174100-aerobask-dassault-aviation-falcon-8x/& Dassault Aviation and Aerobask are proud to announce they have entered into a partnership agreement for the development of Dassault Aviation’s Falcon 8X for the X‑Plane 11 platform from Laminar Research. The Falcon 8X is Dassault Aviation’s flagship and best in class, ultra-long range tri-jet, and the longest bizjet ever built by Dassault Aviation. Our model is developed in collaboration and under the supervision of Dassault Aviation, with step-by-step validation according to their specifications. With a strong experience in development of glass-cockpit airplanes and thanks to privileged access to the real aircraft, we aim at delivering the most realistic experience flying the Falcon 8X.

    [04APR15] Today we lost a dear friend...

    I never thought I'd shed tears over something FlightSim related, but today I did just that. I'm tearing up again up as I type this. Amazing how one man could have such a profound effect on so many lives of people he never met. Yet he clearly cared so deeply for. His love for us, the FS community, was beyond words. I'm off to raise a glass in his memory and shed a few more tears. Jacob

    Possible structural failure resulting in catastrophic loss of cabin pressurization. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3010610/French-alps-crash-French-alps-Germanwings-plane-crash-Lufthansa-GWI9525-4U9525-Airbus-A320-Barcelonnette-Alpes-Hautes-Digne-Les-Bains.html

    Wow! That is indeed sad. And yes you are correct 150 people are no longer with us, will never see family and friends again. If you've never heard the term "Nearest Suitable Alternate" then yes yztpilot is right, you're not a pilot associated with any 121 operation. If FAA designates all suitable alternates in any 121 carriers operations manual. You can just drop a A320/737/757/777/747 into any airfield.

    Not sure what airline or operator you work for but every QRC I've had to memorize classified a complete loss of pressurization as an emergency requiring immediate landing at the nearest suitable alternate. Ever heard of cascading failures? ECS is not just pressurization, a lot of other stuff immediately becomes a concern. Most importantly bleed air and primary equipment cooling. Infact I have the PC for my equipment in front of me now and it classifies a loss of pressurization as the same as smoke/fumes/odor in the cockpit. Its an emergency, you declare it and land immediately. And another thing if you are in an emergency decent profile staying on airway while diving from FL340 to 10,000 ft is insane. What about air traffic below you on the same airway? Especially in RVSM airspace. You may be confusing drift down procedures for an engine out profile with loss of cabin pressurization. I dunno.

    Great work!
  11. http://www.theverge.com/2013/11/8/5080192/microsoft-ceo-candidate-stephen-elop-bing-xbox-rumors If MS sold off Xbox they would be killing off a huge cash cow… and pretty much walking away from gaming all together... I'd watch this closely, as it would give us a small peek into MS thinking as far as gaming goes and any hopes of a future resurrection of Flight Simulator… Which, right now appears to be near zero.
  12. OK... you are entitled to your opinions, yes... So enjoy your Level D 757, if it ever comes out.
